Fun stuff Paul. I like that first one. I was in Fargo the day they were out (not at the show). Watched them make a few flyovers when I was driving down 13th.

Well the Angels are a great show, but so are the other performers. I have been to over 3 dozen Air Shows through the country, and Fargo has one of the best arial shows around. THere are other shows that have more of the old antique and kit type planes hanging around on the ground, but for little old Fargo, we do pretty weill here. A lot of my shots were not as good as I had hoped because they were doing their high show since there was a high ceiling of visability and low wind. That means eveverything low is coming past you at several hundred miles and hour, and chasing them with a 400 mm lens was a challenge especially from my particular vantage point on Sunday. Instead of spending the $20.00/ticket plus parking, we opted to park at Hector International Airport on the other side of the runway taking advantage of the $5.75/day long term parking rate, we just walked across the road and sat next the runway fence. THis put the sun in a bad spot for us photographer types. Many of my shots had bad sun on them. It also hurts like a SOB when you accidently scan past the sun, when chasing a plane.

Thanks everyone for the kind comments. I will try and put up a few more pics.

GREAT SHOTS!!! Fargo is not one airshow that has been on my radar to check out, but will be in the future! The second shot kind of makes me laugh cause most people were probly not expecting it and he came from no where at ??? mph. Thanks for sharing !

    • Looking at buying a tandem axle toy hauler ice house that can haul my Polaris General. Ive looked at Firebrand, Yetti, and Glacier. I like Firebrand the most but I want the Happi jac bed and they dont think General will fit.  Does anyone own a toy hauler with happi jac that will fit a full size side x side. Mine is 74'' tall and that's the issue.
    • I hunt zone 1.  Very interesting to see those numbers.  From what I have seen the herd is showing signs of rebound in our neighborhood.  We're a ways off from being able to tolerate hunters choice, but we're seeing deer again finally.  I agree the herd is in better shape than 2-3 years ago when many people saw no deer and no signs of deer.     So what does it all mean?  I suspect the widespread pain of the glut in major swaths of zone 1 for the dark years has woke some up to the idea of passing does.  There was certainly more opportunity with fewer bucks-only zones and larger doe tag numbers in certain DPAs.    What will be interesting is how the DNR responds to more deer on the landscape up here but fewer does being shot.  We had two doe tags in our group this year and we proudly tossed them in the fire, unfilled, at the end of season.  
    • Inaugural concert attendance (estimated):   Obama 2009: 400,000 Trump 2017: 10,000   Also Trump nodded off because it was so great.
    • I have this problem from time to time but not often.  Sometimes there are little bubbles on the bottom of the transducer and sometimes the ducer isn't below the ice, sometimes it just takes 5 or 10 minutes of sitting in the hole before it starts to pick up the jig.  Other times it works flawlessly.
    • Bingo.  Everything is going good so far.   Not that I would need to answer someone who wasted their vote but being tomorrow will be a great day I thought I'd drop you a line.     The so called Libertarians in silly town.
    • I hate to break your bubble, but your vote and other Trump voters in Minnesota were wasted votes the same as you say those who voted 3rd party were wasted.
    • That a shot at me being former military?
